PETALING JAYA: Premier League outfit Johor Darul Ta’zim II (JDT II) are looking at adding one more foreign player to bolster their squad as the M-League transfer window for foreign players closes on Wednesday.
JDT II have signed Singapore international Shahril Ishak and Spanish duo – centreback Jose Manuel of Real Murcia and striker Braulio Nobrega of Hercules CF – in a bid to win promotion to the Super League.
It is learnt that JDT II have set their sights on an Argentinian midfielder to run the team’s engine room and will try to register the player before transfer deadline.
JDT II coach Azmi Mohamad expects their foreign signings to enhance the team’s performance next season.
“I’m happy with the players we have signed and I’ll focus on gelling the team in our pre-season training,” he said on Tuesday.
